I realize that we've only had a week of Spring Training, but do you think anyone has been consistently BAD enough to have played themselves out of a roster spot already? With so many unproven arms vying for bullpen spots, I think every spring training appearance is more important to pitchers, than to the other position players. Because of this, I think a few of those guys who have already had a few appearances and NOT shown anything real stellar will only get another shot or two to showcase their stuff before they're written off.

the only one's going home are going to be the draft class of 05, imo

I think it's a bit too soon to judge the position players yet, because a couple good at-bats can alter their stats so much, but, I think Cody Ross is kind of getting lost amongst all of the other outfielders right now. If I was him, I wouldn't feel to secure about my job. With LF and RF pretty much being filled with WIllingham and Hermida(meaning I think both could go hitless the rest of Spring Training and still have a good shot at being on the field opening day), that leaves Ross battling for the CF/4th outfielder role. Right now, I think he's getting overshadowed by the likes of Borchard, Abercrombie, and De Aza for certain. Carroll, Reed, and Sanchez are all up there, too, but just don't have as many at-bats as the rest yet.

Aaron and Gaby better not go home this week because they have to sign my pictures :D . Well, I remember Dave Van Boring said they "Might" have a cut day on Friday.

I was wondering if there was a certain day when teams started to cut players.

I *think* it is whenever they want. DVH said the Marlins made a lot of cuts on Friday's last ST.

He has a lot of trouble finding the plate. But he's still a really young player. He's got a decent release its just his command that needs work. Again, he's still very early on in his career. I won't say I'll be glad to see him go but right now, he's not ready for the bigs.

My guess is he spends most of the season with Jupiter.
